The Swell Season - Strict Joy (DLX) - CD/DVD
1 Cd / Dvd
Limited edition includes bonus Dvd. 2009 album from this duo consisting of Glen Hansard (leader of The Frames) and Czech singer Marketa Irglova. They were the stars of the movie Once, and in their musical guise generated a wave of acclaim worldwide during the 2008 awards season garnering two Grammy nominations and an Oscar win for Best Original Song for the hit single 'Falling Slowly'. The duo performed the song on the Oscars telecast (and a host of key TV shows around the world) and Irglova provided one of the most memorable and poignant moments of the evening when host Jon Stewart called her back to the stage after a commercial break to give her acceptance speech. Strict Joy is the follow-up to their self-titled debut.
The 12 new, original songs on Strict Joy were recorded last year and document a time of great change, tumult and progression.
